Coventry City Council chief executive Martin Reeves said:
Daniel was murdered by the two people who should have loved and protected him most, but all organisations in Coventry involved in Daniel's short life now have to face up to their responsibilities and the part they played in the missed opportunities that could have protected Daniel.
We are sorry we did not do enough to protect Daniel.
The report makes clear that the sharing of information and communications between all agencies was not robust enough and no-one fitted together the jigsaw of what was really happening to Daniel.
Opportunities to protect Daniel Pelka, who was beaten to death by his mother and stepfather, 'were missed' a serious case has revealed.
Daniel Pelka's Serious Case Review is strong on what went wrong, but weak on explaining why it was allowed to happen.
